Have you heard of praying in color?
It was something unfamiliar to me until a few months ago when a friend on twitter, The Rev. Lori Johnson, posted about a caim prayer she had done as a drawing. I loved the prayer, and thought it would be a great idea for me and my kids to try. It’s an activity that is good for those of us who need to stay active and moving to stay focused on a task.
After seeing praying in color activities again this weekend in the Diocese of Missouri Sabbath room, I asked for some more resources. Here is Lori’s list.
